So, Ive had these DT 8800s 250 Ohms since a couple months now and i must say that the soundstage just doesnt seem to compare to the Audio Technika A700 which i tried before the DTs.
I am running them on a Asus Xonar Essence STX 2. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001P9O894/ref=oh_details_o08_s01_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
To be more precise, the Audio Technika seemed to truly bring out the single instruments, brought them to live, which felt quite moving.
The GT just doesnt seem to do this ? I am clearly inexperienced in terms of audiophile equipment but the DT just feels like there is a lid on them.
They dont sound terrible mind you but not amazing either it seems. I am wondering if I need an Amp on top of it, at this point i am considering selling the DTs and going back to Audio Technika.
All that said, the DTs certainly have the best build quality and comfort I have ever seen.
Any advice ? Are the DTs just not ment for that kind of finesse listening ?
Like i said, I suspect i am not driving them properly even though that card is pretty good.
